Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the basis was for the calculation of the estimated £40 million savings from the re-organisation of the Learning and Skills Council; whether the calculation was made (a) before and (b) after a decision had been reached on staff numbers and structures; and how much of the estimated saving was savings on (i) staff costs and (ii) administrative costs. 
Bill Rammell [holding answer 11 May 2006]: On 16 September 2005 Mark Haysom, the Learning and Skills Council's chief executive, announced proposals for a new structure for the organisation with the aim of making it more effective at identifying and responding to local learning and skills needs, and to achieve a less bureaucratic and more strategic relationship with partners and providers. It means that the LSC will spend less time on transactional processes and more time developing relationships with key partners and stakeholders. This requires fewer staff with a different set of skills. The calculation of savings of up to £40 million, which could be released for the benefit of learners, was based on these priorities and a structure that will require some 1,100 fewer posts. The savings include staffing, property and related costs. Due to the complexities involved in the restructuring the level of savings may change.
